Weekend Snapshots October 11-13, 2013

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Chris and I had a nice and rainy weekend here in DC. The sun is finally supposed to peak out this afternoon and I am so excited! I don’t think we’ve seen the sun since last Monday!

After a rainy Friday, I decided to make some chili for Chris and I to enjoy at home.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Chris and I had a busy semi-busy/semi-relaxing weekend in DC. It was kind of nice to be in the district after spending most of the weekends this past summer away!

On Friday, Chris and I headed into DC to meet some friends at Darlington House in DuPont Circle. Chris wanted to watch one of the soccer games that was on, which is why I think he chose Darlington House. It was full of soccer fans!

Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon: Race Recap

Happy Friday!! As promised today I have a recap of my first half marathon that I ran in Virginia Beach this past Sunday.

On Saturday night, Chris and I made smoothies to drink in the morning since we were waking up at 4 AM. We combined a banana, strawberry yogurt, a single serving vanilla protein drink, frozen blueberries, a few frozen strawberries, and a handful of frozen peaches. We blended and stored it in the fridge overnight. Bedtime came early– about 10:30.

After my alarm went off at 4, I threw on my running clothes and ran downstairs to finish off the smoothies. I poured them into glasses and added probably a tablespoon of chia seeds to each glass (thanks Carter for bringing us chia seeds!!). We gulped the smoothies down while we made sure we had everything. We grabbed our bibs, connected our shoe tracking chips, and I packed my Camelbak. I debated bringing the Camelbak, but I was so happy to have it for extra water in between stations and to hold my phone, ID, and a little bit of “emergency cash.”
